Sr. Kg – January 2017

Theme for the monthOur Feathered friends (birds)

Children are curious about the world around them and enjoy exploring their surroundings. Because of their inquisitive temperament, they are eager to know why things are the way they are and ask many questions about their immediate environment. Childhood is the right time to encourage and nurture early interest in nature.

Thus by incorporating the topic ‘Our Feathered friends (birds)’ into the curriculum, your child will find answers to many questions. He/She will also learn about the specific birds in detail and will gain an insight about each bird.

The intent is to inculcate in your child an interest for the diversity and beauty of the natural surroundings and understand the importance of the inter dependence of living things.

 Effective usage of Role plays, Audio Visual learning and technology will be the methodology used.


Introduction to digraphs ‘o_e’, ‘u_e’ and the revision of tricky words: two, four, goes, made, their, does.

To reinforce the use of new vocabulary, usage of the following words will be encouraged: walk, stroll, build, construct, tell, narrate, recite, chant and sing.


The child will learn numerals from 1-80 with number names fifteen, sixteen and seventeen. We shall also do concepts related to comparing sizes, money and shades of black and white.

Science experiment:Your child will learn about the properties of air.
